Three areas that we look forward to addressing when reviewing the application of your business or public program include:

KTA not only wants to help your business or community recover from its current struggles but to establish a plan to anticipate problems and prevent disasters from affecting your firm in the future. This could include designing flood-resistant construction or developing a community economic partnership.
